Building world-class research centers in North Dakota

Red River Valley Research Corridor

Praxis Strategy Group coordinates the Red River Valley Research Corridor, an initiative championed by U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan and designed to build world-class research centers and support the region’s growing high-tech sector. The corridor, anchored by North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota, builds on the research capacity of North Dakota’s major research institutions to help build and attract businesses, generate new economic opportunities and create well-paying jobs for the region.

As part of the effort, Praxis Strategy Group has organized 21 Action Summit events highlighting key research areas in the region since the project began in 2004. These events showcase the area’s potential as an epicenter of innovation, technology-based development and commercialization. With continued success, the initiative will create new economic opportunities for North Dakota and the Upper Great Plains.
